New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Buffalo Sabres left wing John Scott faces a suspension after an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a hit in Wednesday's game against Boston.

In-person hearings are required under the collective bargaining agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

Scott received a match penalty for an illegal check to the head of Boston's Loui Eriksson in the third period of Wednesday's 5-2 Bruins victory. He was also given a fighting major for a scuffle with Boston's Adam McQuaid after the play.

Eriksson was helped to the dressing room and did not return to the game. He remained hospitalized overnight in Buffalo for observation.
